it is clearer in another picture of it, it has a grey base color, a nice reticulated netting to the scales. goishiki are not reticulated. I don't see any GinRin(sparkly scales)
Izabella, it was not nice for that forum to tell you your koi were ugly! They are pond grade koi but you have some nice ones there that are going to look nice grown up. and the Mutt koi(un-name able ones) can be lovely in their own right
here is my Ochiba, they are my favorite. Her name is Rootbeer. She is a GinRin Ochiba Shigure. the name describes the pattern and colors "Autumn leaves floating on the water"
this picture is about 2 years old, Rootbeer is now about 26 inches
